‘They made a mistake’: Liquor board chair slammed with DUI charge after night out at Maryland casino

Published

on

Prince George’s Co. liquor board chairman had such a good time on Thursday night at the new MGM Grand casino opening that he scored a charge of driving under the influence.

Fox5DC reports that Charles Caldwell, III was arrested around 11:40 pm after a crash with two other cars was reported. The officer who responded to the incident smelled alcohol on Caldwell’s breath and gave him a field sobriety test. He failed and refused to take a breathalyzer test.

Caldwell told Fox5 that he’d had a cocktail or two over the course of the two hours that he spent at the MGM Grand opening but “this was blown out of proportion.”

He also denied that he refused the breathalyzer and that he did take one once he arrived at the police station. “The results were inconclusive,” he said.

He also explained that he’s almost 73 years old and is sometimes unsteady on his feet and that was why he failed the officer’s field sobriety test. “I believe they made a mistake,” he said.

White House aides fear Trump believes House vote against impeachment means it’s never going to happen: report

Published

A proposal to start impeachment hearings that failed in the House on Wednesday led Donald Trump to optimistically proclaim that his presidency is safe at his North Carolina rally last night. But his proclamation has some White House officials worried the president really believes he is out of the woods.

According to a report at Politico, close aides to the president worry that his comment that "we have all this [impeachment] behind us," may be based on an unfounded notion by Trump about how Congress works.

Speaking at his campaign rally in Greenville, N.C., Trump boasted to the crowd, "I just heard that the United States House of Representatives has overwhelmingly voted to kill the most ridiculous project I’ve ever been involved in: the resolution -- how stupid is that -- on impeachment. I want to thank those Democrats because many of them voted for us, the vote was a totally lopsided 332-95-1.”

NPR reporter Tamara Keith on Thursday asked the Trump campaign if it wanted to disavow the racist "send her back" chant directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) during a Wednesday night Trump campaign rally.

In response to Keith's question, Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh not only refused to disavow the chants, but then took the opportunity to attack the entire Democratic Party for being aligned with "socialism."

"The Squad, as they call themselves, are now the leaders of the Democrat Party," he replied. "Americans don’t like it when elected officials consistently disparage this country. All the Democrats are pushing socialist ideas that are terrible for America. They are all the same."
